4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great venue, nice atmosphere and attentive staff. Having a special meal with family, good choice of starters and mains. However very disappointed with desert £6.90 for very small slice of baklava and £3.50 extra for 2 scoops of ice cream. I feel was overpriced.

This was our first visit to a Greek restaurant, and we liked it. Food was excellent with a good choice of starters and mains. The place itself is rather small but comfy. A special thank you to the attentive staff. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Three of us had a delightful lunch here, and were delighted with the authentic menu, which is better than any Greek restaurant I've ever visited, even in Greece! Service was warm and friendly, and our waitress, Lauren was attentive and charming throughout. We were particularly pleased by the relatively unusual dishes like bougatsa, and the authenticity of the food generally.... More

This is a moderately upmarket restaurant, specialising in Greek cuisine.The food and staff were great, with plenty to choose from. I would suggest not sitting in the front window, though. The view is of hideous modernist buildings and traffic queuing for the 'Big Catholic Church' crossroads. There's also the distraction of a pedestrian crossing, but you won't be so disinterested...

Me and my partner came here for our New Year's Eve dinner and we had an incredible time. We were seated by the window and given lovely cucumber infused water whilst a very friendly and knowledgeable waiter took our coats. We shared a few different mezze options which were all amazing! As were the delicious and beautiful cocktails. All of... More

We went with friends for dinner. The menu is varied and interesting. The wines are sllightly odd, being Greek which I am not familar with, but very nice. The cost was reasonable and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Our meals were served promptly and the courses were at reasonabe intervals.

This place is very good, both the cuisine and the service are excellent. I took my wife there for her birthday and enjoyed a wonderful evening. The upstairs was pretty lively with some large parties (Fri night), and it was a lot of fun. Highly recommend it.

The food was lovely- brilliant salad with halloumi, my sister enjoyed her risotto a lot and so did my mother. The waiters were a little dismissive but the food was prompt and absolutely delicious. A good meal out.

We had walked towards the town from the station on a bitterly cold day. So desperate to find a restaurant and get out of the cold The Olive Grove looked appealing from the street. We shared three interesting dips with warm pitta bread and decided on mains. I went for the lamb fillet and my partner stuck with the ever... More
